“Located at the edge of the Charles River in East Cambridge, on one of the last available waterfront sites in the area, the 206 luxury residences at The Esplanade offer residents the best of several worlds the pleasures of waterside living and close proximity to both the vitality of Cambridge's university cultural center, and the verve and excitement of the Commonwealth's capital city……Safdie's complex design of two L-shaped towers steps back from the river from a three story base, creating landscaped 12' x 18' canopied terraces. The Esplanade features bays, balconies and floor-to-ceiling windows to extend the living spaces, accentuating the wonderful views and brightening each home with an abundance of natural light.” (http://www.the-esplanade.com/)
